DL 380 G3 / Smart Start Install and Setup Issue

I booted to smart start 8.25 CD and ran through the setup. It prompted me for my installation CD (which is W2003 R2 OEM). It copied all the files and the system rebooted sucessfully. The OS then started up and began to run through the remaining windows setup items. When it prompted me for the Product Key it only asked me for the "Volume Licensing Product Key". As I am using a fresh OEM install with new COA label It will not take the OEM Number. Did I miss something here? or is the Smart Start CD not compatible with OEM or store bought distros, and only works with VLK?
